subsidizing a technology that destroys the environment in the name of saving the environment. for example, for the same -- it would take a row of 50 wind turbines from the appalachian trail to maine, that's 178 miles, to produce the same amount of electricity that four nuclear reactors would produce. the best way, mr. president, to produce cheap, clean energy in the united states is to let the marketplace do it, let the marketplace do it, not to subsidize jobs for technology that can stand on its own and produces only a small amount of unreliable electricity. so, mr. president, let's use this week to celebrate but let's celebrate the end of the temporary 21-year-old wind production tax credit and use the $12.1 billion saved to reduce the federal debt. thank you, mr. president. i yield the floor. a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from louisiana. ms. landrieu: thank you, mr. president. i have come to the floor to speak just briefly about a very exciting opportunity and occurrence that we celebrate and honor every november, and that is the opportunity to adopt chil

green, all things relating to the environment and our energy policy how optimistic are you that we're going to find a solution to this in the coming years, which is to say the next four? >> you know, in hearing the president speak and reading -- it's i guess confused as an observer and i love listening to you but trying to parse out what it means because what it goes back to for me, in the election, when politicians were separating ow the economy from birth control i was like, no, it's the same. when we hear, we have to see what's economically sound, and when we talk about climate change and energy, didn't i just hear, and don't we think the future is green jobs and what that means? so kind of stepping back, makes me feel frustrated because i feel like isn't that the direction we need to be going in and how do we convince americans that, yeah, you know what, prices at pump have to go up if we want to have them not? >> you can ask somebody who has lost a business in coney island or in the rockaways if this is about jobs and growth. >> right. >> there are people who are going to take
in this hard-charging be the best environment, it was a take no prisoners attitude, right? >> it was. and we were two really different children. and now that i have two sons of my own and i have seen them come out i see that kids are born differently. they respond to the same type of parenting totally differently. for myself it drove me to perfection. it drove me to demand the most for myself. it drove me to study inhuman hours. i could keep going relept -- relentlessly like you do around here. i could charge harder. but for my sister, when she felt she couldn't perform and she couldn't make my mother happy, and she couldn't achieve the same things she saw me doing it destroyed her. it took a big bite out of her confidence and out of hershey thought she was. -- out of who she thought she was. >> where was your dad in all of this? >> my dad and i are very close and we talk and e-mail every day. he was a small business owner. he was someone who worked all the time. we had a very traditional family where he would go out and earn, and my mother would stay home and take care of us. i talk to my s
fear. and didn't happen. going forward, miss schaefer, certainly it is a very challenging environment for the republican party because you have a dependency in this country when more than half of the american homes are receiving some kind of entitlement. so much of that's earned, but a lot of it is not. more than half. they're becoming more and more dependent on washington rather than the republican vision, less and less. >> right. i think one thing democrats have been very successful at is creating many more wards of the state, if you will. that's a serious cultural shift that republicans are up against now. they need to really make the -- get the message out there that limiting -- >> bill: what would that message be though? don't take the free stuff, make it on your own? you think that message is really going to get through? in this day and age? >> it would have to be more nuance. when we're talking to women, for instance, i think they need to explain how protective legislation in the workplace, for instance, doesn't actually give you more freedom or more flexibility. >> bill: that'
is a process put into place that will force us to get tax reform done. i believe we have an environment that will lend itself to us really doing that. it will be an extraordinary thing. you are right. it will not be easy. because -- you be, the federal government is still facing extraordinary deficits. i mean, we have a trillion-dollar-a-year deficit. we have to keep that in mind so that when the speaker talks about putting revenues on the table that in return, we actually can tell the people of this country that we are going to stop doing what we are doing and actually fwin to pay down the debt. so the tax code, i believe is the tool for us to grow. if we can implement pro-growth tax return, we will see entrepreneurs, investors put their money to work and grow this economy, create more jobs. that's -- that will be a significant piece of trying to go and manage down this debt and deficit. so all of the stars can aline if we can actually come together, set aside the differences and decide we are going to deliver a result for the people. >> greta: is there any cultural adjustment we can d
the school food environment, it's a really good start. >> reporter: the center for science in the public interest says we need more federal involvement, not less, but critics draw the line at the lunch room door. >> we don't live in a one size fits all country. i think the result is going to be a lot of wasted food. >> they eat the fries and burger and kind of toss the vegetables and fruit. >> reporter: it's the same across the country where what's healthy is trashed. so in fairfax county the menu is put to a taste test. >> nothing goes on our menu that hasn't passed a taste party. >> reporter: fairfax, too bans junk food vending during school, but a report card by cspi gave virginia a d and maryland a d plus while schools that cracked down may face a backlash, not just from kids but parents revolting. >> they feel in some ways it's unamerican that their children should be able to make the choices that they want to make. >> reporter: unamerican for schools to ban what's bad for you? they can serve up whole wheat hamburger buns and post the calorie count, but they can't make kids eat i

, one that improves the environment, saves money in the long run. congress can begin on this now. in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, congress can't ignore the near bankrupt flood insurance program. while we fix the short-term problems, however, let's make it more effective, efficient and actuarially sound so that it will spare lives, property and the federal treasury. overhauling the flood insurance program would solve the most immediate challenges caused by extreme weather events likely due to global warming. we may even be able to discuss climate change in a more thoughtful and rational way. based on work i've done in the past with congressman ryan and jeff flake, i know agriculture reform is a ripe opportunity. taxpayers cannot afford to lavish unnecessary subsidies on large agri business while harming the environment and shortchanging small farmers and ranchers. surely, tea party republicans and members of the progressive caucus can come together to improve nutrition, wildlife habitat, hunting and fishing while strengthening family farms. and since big bird dodged a bullet

there was a sense on issues like injury and the environment. they had a vision where we have competition in places like china, germany and india. if we are going to have a thriving american century we cannot come in second place to those countries in the new technology industries of the future and i think that plays an important role. you know the obama vision was one where they thought better suited the country. and there is no question on social issues. whether it is women's health care, immigration, gay rights. there are a set of issues particularly for younger voters so, people vote very, very carefully. the economy was a dominant issue. i think that is why ultimately some people chose the president to continue the journey we are on. now quickly in terms of democracy, you know we don't know this for sure, but we could be seeing very different elections. that of that in 2010, 14, maybe 18 will be quite a bit different. the comments i made two years ago were predicated on what we thought would happen in a presidential year. the latino turnout was surging. president winning more of the latino vo
